Wrightslaw Training in Houston, TX – Location Change!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Location change due to Hurricane Harvey.

The program will be held at the Houston Community College, Western Loop Campus, 5601 West Loop S, Houston, TX, 77081.

One-day special education law and advocacy programs focus on four areas:

special education law, rights and responsibilities
tests and measurements to measure progress & regression
introduction to tactics & strategies for effective advocacy

Wrightslaw programs are designed to meet the needs of parents, educators, health care providers, advocates and attorneys who represent children with disabilities regarding special education. The program is not disability specific.

NOTE: Pete will discuss the McKinney-Vento Act and the two recent unanimous U.S. Supreme Court spec ed cases and how he expects those two cases will be used to open more doors to the school house and the court house for our children with special needs.

NOTE: Due to road cleanup and detours, the start will be delayed by a half hour, lunch will be shortened to forty-five minutes, and the program will end fifteen minutes later than the original schedule. That will provide the full six hours of continuing education so that the program will be in compliance with the accrediting agencies.

See you in Houston!

  1. I’m guessing this will not happen in Houston. Will this presentation be given in a different city in Texas?

    Also, I’m a BCBA, and find your website extremely informative. Are there any plans to offer CEU’s for BCBA’s who attend your trainings?

    • Ann: The decision about rescheduling due to Hurricane Harvey to be posted by September 4, 2017.

      The program will be modified to include in-depth information about the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act!

      CEU’s through the University of Missouri-Kansas City Division of Continuing Education provide both graduate credit for practicing teachers and CEUs for a variety of professionals who need to document their professional development hours.

      Each individual needs to check with their professional certification body, professional society, or governmental licensing board to see if they will accept these units.

      Each state and profession has its own certification process.
